Manchester united are in dire need of a experience and stability in the defensive midfield area. With Nemanja Matics looking for a move away from the side, and Fred inconsistent; United are only left with reliable McTominay in that crucial position.
However, United are reported to have opened discussion with Barcelona Midfielder Arturo Vidal, with hopes of a possible acquisition in January.
Arturo Vidal has fallen down the peeking order in Barcelona, and it is reported the he is getting more frustrated with his current situation at the Spanish Club. The 32-years-old Chilean is also considering offer from Italy, with Inter Milan the only one interested in his services so far.
Manchester united will have to outbid and outsmart Inter for the signature of the Chilean, and Barcelona have placed a transfer fee in the range of £13 million on him.
Vidal is armed with a lot of experience from top European clubs, having won four Seria A titles with Juventus, One La Liga title with Barcelona, and three Bundesliga titles with Bayern Munich. The midfield bully has also won the Copa America with is national side, playing a crucial part in the triumph.
